Market Overview

The global rotogravure printing ink market size was worth US$ XX million in 2020 and is estimated to record significant growth by reaching up to US$ XX million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX% within the forecast period (2021-2028).

Rotogravure is an Intaglio Printing process involving engraving the image onto an image carrier. The picture is engraved onto a cylinder; the ink is applied directly to the cylinder and transferred to the substrate in gravure printing. Because of its capacity to print on thin film such as polyester, OPP, nylon and PE, which come in a wide variety of thicknesses, generally 10 to 30 micrometers, rotogravure printing is the most prevalent printing method used in flexible packaging manufacture.

The rotogravure printing process is rarely widely used, owing to its high initial investment and lengthy process of producing printing cylinders. It means that, while employing this method, product delivery timeframes will be quite long. However, the rotogravure process rules supreme when it comes to generating high-end printing in huge quantities.

Market Dynamics

Increasing flexible packaging application in various end-user industries has created immense demand for rotogravure printing inks. Increasing demand for the rotogravure inks due to their high-quality finishes, sharp and fine lines drives the market share for the product.

Increasing flexible packaging application in various end-user industries has created immense demand for rotogravure printing inks market

Flexible packaging has become much more popular in various industries ranging from consumer products to industrial applications. Gravure printing inks are used for flexible packaging printing. Because of its capacity to print on thin film such as polyester, OPP, nylon and PE, which come in a wide variety of thicknesses, generally 10 to 30 micrometers, rotogravure printing is the most prevalent printing method used in flexible packaging manufacture.

Flexible packaging has a major application in the e-commerce sector. It can minimize shipping costs as a lightweight packaging medium, and it can be built to precisely match small package transport. Shipping containers can protect difficult-to-ship goods with built-in air pockets and pouches that stand up to air pressure and drop through the logistics channels can be used. Manufacturers are developing a business focus that caters to flexible packaging for this channel, including the specific requirements and durability solutions. Thus improving the need for flexible packaging is expected to create immense opportunities for gravure printing inks to grow in the forecast period.

Increasing demand for the rotogravure inks due to their high-quality finishes, sharp and fine lines drives the market share for the product

Rotogravure printing inks are used where high quality, sharp, and fine lines are required, such as greeting cards, wallpapers, wrapping papers, magazines, advertising materials including brochures, catalogs, self-adhesive labels, and flexible print packaging industry. High-speed drying solutions are essential for such inks to reduce printing flaws and improve dry performance. The inks used in rotogravure printing are more durable.

Furthermore, rotogravure printing inks offer various advantages, such as Rotogravure printing is the only high speed and volume print process capable of printing continuous-tone images. Rotogravure printing produces superior ink laydown and more uniform print quality as a direct print method. In addition, modern presses can print up to 14 meters of film per second, allowing for extraordinarily fast turnaround times.

In other to speed up the printing process, rotogravure printing uses solvent-based inks that dry quickly and reduce time and cost. Labor costs are cheap because the process is almost fully automated. Rotogravure cylinders are incredibly robust and may be used for multiple print runs if utilized and serviced regularly. Thus the mentioned advantages offered by the product are creating various opportunities for the product to grow in the forecast period.

The growing shift from print to digital media is hurdling the market's growth.

For the past many decades, printing technology has been reshaped due to the arrival of various printing techniques. Digital printing is one of the major changes that has changed the overall market share for the printing industry and has built multiple challenges for rotogravure printing methods.

Digital printing, unlike rotogravure printing, does not require printing plates; instead, it employs a toner similar to that used in laser printers or other big printers that print with liquid ink. When fewer bags are required, digital printing outperforms rotogravure printing, such as when a food maker has 50 or 100 business package printing goods and only needs a few bags of each. Changeable data is another advantage of digital printing over rotogravure printing. When each component requires a unique code, address and name, digital printing is the best option.

At the same time, rotogravure printing cannot accommodate this need. While rotogravure printing is undoubtedly more cost-effective per bag, which cannot ignore the fact that many businesses do not require big runs of 10,000 or more per SKU and, digital printing is the best option. Thus various additional advantages associated with digital printing methods acted as the major hurdle for the growth of rotogravure printing inks in recent times.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Since rotogravure printing inks are not final commodities in and of themselves but rely on primary goods for their growth, the novel coronavirus has had a detrimental influence on the market. However, demand for such primary commodities has gradually reduced due to the pandemic, thus impacting the rotogravure printing inks market revenue. Due to numerous country-specific lockdowns and limitations, demand for various consumer-oriented goods has gradually diminished.

Production units have become overworked, resulting in the rotogravure printing inks market's demise. COVID 19 has impacted that most major players have been forced to shut down their main production units and lay off people. However, once the lockdown limitations are lifted, and individuals are free to travel, the market is projected to rise significantly. Following the lockdown, it is expected that demand for printing inks will expand significantly in the packaging and advertising media sectors, resulting in a market boom.

Segment Analysis

The global rotogravure printing ink market can be segmented on resin type, technology, application and region.

Solvent-based offers various advantages, such as it is faster and takes less time to dry. The market growth factor is the raw material price volatility, combined with various environmental laws

The global rotogravure printing ink market based on technology is segmented into solvent-based, water-based and others. Of the mentioned types, solvent-based holds a dominating position in the market. While solvent-based is faster and takes less time to dry, water-based is more environmentally friendly but takes longer to dry. Over the last few years, oil and solvent-based printing inks have dominated the industry, while water-based printing inks are predicted to be the fastest-growing category.

Over the projection period, raw material price volatility, combined with various environmental laws on solvent-based printing inks, is likely to interfere with gravure printing ink industry growth and provide challenges to industry participants. Furthermore, the mass manufacturing of UV cured and water-based printing inks is expected to present lucrative prospects for industry participants.

Technological advancements such as quick-change press developed by Cerrutti and Schiavi, allowing changeovers in a considerably shorter period and ensuring high efficiency at minimized cost, are expected to yield industry participants opportunities.

Geographical Analysis

Growing lamination and food packaging industries and rising demand for processed and canned foods in emerging countries such as China and India is boosting the Asia-Pacific market

Asia-Pacific is projected to witness significant gravure printing ink market growth over the forecast period due to the region's growing lamination and food packaging industries. The industry in the region is likely to benefit from the rising demand for processed and canned foods in emerging countries such as China and India. Increasing disposable income is expected to fuel demand for interior design with personalized wallpapers, resulting in market expansion.

Furthermore, the Asia-Pacific is reported to show unprecedented growth in the flexible packaging market in the last few years. It is expected to maintain dominance in the projected time frame.
